17 Lessons from Traveling with an Infant

Posted By Trav

We took Whit on his first international trip.

7 months old and already strolling the banks of the Danube in Budapest and seeing the beaches of Mallorca, Spain.

We made mistakes, and learned a lot on this two and a half week trip across the Atlantic!

Listen to hear a tip that could save you hundreds of dollars if you fly on points, and to hear some of the things that worked really well for Whit on the road!

    I would highly recommend you think about using a baby carrier. It’s much smaller than a stroller and much easier to get up and down stairs, etc. Look into carriers like a Tula, Beco, Gustine, etc.

      @Andrea – We started using the Doona and we love it. A car seat and a stroller in one – it’s amazing. Have you ever seen it?

    Hi, we are having our first baby and are curious about your suggestions for baby gear. I’m a frequent listener and feel like you talked about some of the things you’ve purchased, but cannot remember what episode.
